Apple looks to tackle all of the latest low-cost tablets entering the market
no secret that Apple is set to lower the price of entry for the iPad
with the introduction of the
new iPad mini
. Well, the company today confirmed that it has "a little more to show you" next Tuesday.
The iPad mini is expected to feature a 7.85" display with a rather lackluster screen resolution of 1024x768. This screen resolution is the same as the original iPad and the iPad 2, but well below the 2048x1536 of the "New iPad". By sticking with 1024x768, Apple is ensuring that the iPad mini will be compatible with the full library of iPad apps without creating additional fragmentation.
, there are 24 different configurations for the iPad mini (two colors, Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + LTE, two carriers, and three different storage capacities).
Not much else is known about the iPad mini, but we can expect front- and rear-facing cameras, a
Lightning dock connector
, and a much lighter device overall compared to the hefty 1.44 pound New iPad. The battery capacity for the iPad mini is reportedly 16.7 watt-hours. This compares to 5.45, 24, and 42.5 watt-hours for the iPhone 5, iPad 2, and New iPad respectively.
There is little doubt that Apple is likely to have another hit on its hands with the iPad mini, as its customers are a very loyal bunch. This is despite that fact that companies like
Barnes and Noble
offer tablets with higher resolutions screens.

Sorry english isn't my native language. I once had an iPod Touch (2) and was so turned off by the whole idea that "all your base belongs to apple", that I used it for one week and later gave it away as a gift. I prefer Android because I love to tinker and put on modifications. I would never ever again buy an apple product anymore, but I respect that Apple has found a way to sell a lot of products and bind them to their products because of those restrictions. This is what I meant with visionary regarding Apple. The whole idea behind Apple products was (first iPad, iPod, iMac, iPhone) so good that they became one of the most popular brands in the world, but that's a product I would by.

Google's Android may be more "open" in some respects versus competition like MS and Apple, but if any of you think Google doesn't have the ability to pull the plug on virtually everything that makes android android then you are crazy.
"There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance." -- Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer
